Gilded Mirror Glass


GILDED MIRROR GLASS

Glass gilding is a process which involves laying gold or metal leaf onto the back of a clear piece of glass using a gelatine 'size'. Each leaf is individually laid, and once completed, left to dry creating a beatufiul mirror-like finish. We then use different ageing techniques to create an amazing array of finishes.

This ancient technique dates back to pre-Roman eras but saw a revival back in the 18th century by French specialist decorator Jean-Baptiste Glomy and contiues to be practiced by a small number of specailist decorators across the world today.

Our glass can be used for mirrors & splashbacks and is available in custom sizes to suit any project. If you would like a quote for our gilded glass or have any questions regarding this service please contact us.

All of our designs are completly unique to us and are produced after hours and hours of experimentation. The different designs are created depending of what type of metal leaf is used and what techniques are applied when ageing the leaf.

When continue to experiment with different metal leaf and ageing techniques, creating new designs constantly. To see our current gallery of gilded glass designs please select the button below.
